Pink Compression Sleeve Program

Pink Compression Sleeve Program
Compression Sleeve Reimbursement Program

Supporting Patients with Lymphedema

The development of lymphedema can occur following a mastectomy or lumpectomy when lymph nodes are removed. This can result in the need of a compression sleeve and or glove to help alleviate the swelling. Our compression Sleeve Program is similar to our Wig Reimbursement Program. We will underwrite the cost of a patient’s first compression sleeve up to $100.00 just requiring a copy of the patients prescription and a paid receipt for reimbursement.
